    SEO process not only starts after the website is live by the SEO experts, however there are certain other parameter which every web developer should know to avoid some of the SEO errors during the time of development. If the web developers become unaware of these type of silly errors then there could be a serious problem to the website just after it's live and it will take more time and efforts from developers and SEO professional to recover from these effects.

    Avoid Common SEO Mistakes

     

    • Developers should always put robots.txt file on the root folder at the header of the draft domain like http://draft.XYZ.com, otherwise Google will also crawl your draft site URL links on its database and will show them up on search engine result page too before your site live.
    • If web developers are working on the revamp of an existing website then they should always remove the Google analytic code from the draft site, otherwise Google analytic will also display the stats for the draft domain along with the existing running domain. If this is happened then you will not be able to give correct analytic statistics to the client.
    • As we know we can restrict search engines to a website via two different ways, one by disallowing through robots.txt file and other by specifically putting nofollow and noindex meta robots tags on a webpage. There are some cases identified in which web developers allowed the search engine by robots.txt file but unfortunately forget to remove the nofollow and noindex robots tag specifically from a web page just after the site live. In that case, we keep wondering why our webpages are not crawled and indexed by search engine. so, to get rid from this issue developer always need to check and remove the nofollow and noindex robots tag from a web page.

     

    Hope web developers find these all tips useful and will follow them during the time of web development and avoid these common SEO mistakes and protect site from getting hurt by search engine.
